I recently counted the calories i get in a typical day, and i found that it is not nearly enough.. I know this has probably had negative impacts on my metabolism among other things, but is there a way to raise my metabolism back up? will just increasing my calorie intake do this?

Just progressively increase your calories to maintenance, and your metabolism will definitely correct itself.

Correct.
If you're worried about fat gain, gradually increase your cardio as well (though try not to burn more calories than you're adding!)

thanks, how fast would you suggest i increase the calorie intake? 100 per week? per day? which one will result in a better transition to normal levels without affects too much else?
